I’ve been working on this story for months, constantly trying to perfect it’s plot and directing. I’ve decided to publish it as an entry to the Fantastical Contest!

Title: Fantastical: Regnum Fortes
About: You’re a set of twins which were suddenly zapped into a realm you never even knew about. What now?
Episodes: 3 (on-going)
What to expect:

  • This story uses a point system! (Choices actually matter.)
  • This story has a wide variety of Love Interests! Even options for the LGBT community!
  • Some pretty rad effects! (50+ overlays and backgrounds were used!)
  • Fighting scenes!
  • Plot twists you never saw coming!
  • Diverse characters!
  • Text effects!
  • + Many more features!

So, what are you waiting for? I’d love to get a critique!
Feel free to comment on what you think about the story and how I can improve it!

Have a good day, guys :sparkles:

Hey!
Here’s my critique (by reading your first episode)
The directing shows you know much about coding, which is quite good. Frankly though, I think it could use a little clean-up. Like how the strange man in the rain randomly exited, I feel like it might’ve looked better if he exited backwards instead of forward. Also, the sound of rain could be heard when the MC came back to her apartment. The choices also don’t seem to matter too much, in my opinion. As for the zooming, it’s good you want to put focus on the characters when they speak, but I kind of feel like they’re cropped out a bit sometimes and they tend to be out of the center. The spot placement could also use a bit of tweaking :slight_smile: i hope you experiment with it more! If this discourages you even a bit, please don’t let it get to you! I actually wrote this in the hopes of helping you improve your directing of course, we all have different visuals and I’m sure you’ll work best with your own vision. These are just mere suggestions.

Other than the direction, the plot is actually intriguing! I love how flawed the MC can be, because I don’t believe in perfect people.

Overall, I’m keeping your story in my library. I’m interested in how the story unfolds :blush::+1:t3:

Thanks a ton, once again! :revolving_hearts:

I’m not here for a read for read, but I read your story, and I’ve just got to say, that it’s really great :smile:

I can really tell how much effort you put into your directing, and the result is great! How much branching was necessary for the episodes that were released, I don’t even want to know :exploding_head: (I actually am kind of curious though :sweat_smile:)

Overall, this is a really good story :blush:
